Ahrefs is looking to hire students for internship in the backend team at our main office in Singapore (we might consider remote internship for the right candidate). We will be giving preference to senior (closer to graduation) years. We are ready to accommodate for terms as short as 2-3 months and adjust working dates/ hours to your academic schedule.


You can get a sense of what we are doing at and in particular Our day to day language is OCaml, with bits of D and C++ here and there. You can see some of our projects opensourced at and some contributions in core OCaml compiler as well as surrounding infrastructure. We are a member of OCaml Software Foundation and proud sponsor of many functional programming conferences.

What to Expect

Work on real-world projects ranging from crawling entire Internet to processing petabytes of data extracted from those crawls and serving user requests consuming these data. We don't have explicit training sessions but you can expect all the needed help and advice from the team. You will be assigned one-on-one mentor to review your code and give feedback. You will be expected to write code in OCaml (ReasonML, Rust, C++ are up for discussion).

Ahrefs does not engage with agencies or third party recruitment solutions for the roles we hire for. If at any point we need help, we'll let you know! 

Who we are

We are a small team that strongly believes that better technology leads to better solutions for real-world problems. We worship functional languages and static typing, extensively employ code generation and meta-programming, value code clarity and predictability, and constantly seek to automate repetitive tasks and eliminate boilerplate.

We are guided by DRY and follow KISS. If there is new technology that will make our life easier, we'll give it a try. We rely heavily on open-source code (as the only viable way to build maintainable system) and contribute back. We occasionally blog on

Our motto is first do it, then do it right, then do it better
